Doomsday on Fortune is an article on the fortunes of DOOM 3 (thanks Mike Martinez). Here's a bit revealing that a little Carmack is on the way:

In an even more troubling sign for id's future, Carmack has begun to give indications that he's getting bored. Married since 2000, he's expecting his first child in August. And he has spent the past three years devoting 40 hours a week to Armadillo Aerospace, his four-year-old company that is working to develop customized rocket ships. "If I wasn't doing what I'm doing in videogames, someone else would within a year or two," says Carmack. "In aerospace things are still being done the same as they were 50 years ago. I feel that I can really make an impact in that field."

As for the article, I give Carmack one last really "new" engine and then I expect him to drop out or, along the same lines, push the "director" title to an extreme and heavily reduce his polygon-thinking time...

I tend to agree, he's been pushing out new 3d engines since I was about 15, and lets just say I'm no longer 21. In addition the comment long the lines of others will do the engine pretty soon anyway is probably true. When W3D and DOOM came out the engine was what truly made the game. Since Q2 I've been mightily impressed with the level design out of id, Bottom line even if JC left to do rockets or whatever id will continue to do well at least for the next 5 years.
